"Guacamole, & Tortilla soup was great! Carnitas were just ok. Margarita's were OK, could be sweeter. Server, Runners, floor manager & hostess were excellent. Super fast. Restaurant very loud. Very crowded people in isle by our table. But overall fun night out. Took 2.5 months to get reservations on Sat. at time I wanted. Seated right at reservation time with a window seat. Very nice! Overall worth the wait. Just a picky Chef..."

"The food was absolutely amazing. I got the taco sampler and every single one was fantastic. Original guac was really great as well. I have two complaints. First it was so loud, we couldn't even hear our server half the time. Which didn't really seem like noise could be controlled since it's an open set up and the bar is in the middle of the dining room. Only other complaint is our server was less than stellar. Zero energy or enthusiasm."

"First off, my server was great. When she was concerned that I didn't like my sangria, she offered to bring me something else. The food was excellent and reasonable for a Starr restaurant. Our tab was $100 for two people, including drinks, appetizer and dessert.
That said, I can't figure out why there's such a long wait to get a reservation. Yeah, it was good, but not "wait two months for a reservation" good. Even at 5 o'clock in the afternoon, the wait without a reservation was an hour."
